Rheinmetall Mission Master

The autonomous unmanned ground vehicle maximizing soldier efficiency

With the Mission Master, Rheinmetall developed a unique concept of unmanned multipurpose ground vehicles (A-UGV). On top of being useful for reconnaissance and surveillance operations, the Mission Master can be fitted for tactical overwatch, CBRN detection, MEDEVAC operations, and communication relay missions.

Each version of the Rheinmetall Mission Master is already networked to both the Argus soldier system and the Rheinmetall Command and Control Software, which can be installed in any user’s battle management system.

Capable of performing in dangerous or hard-to-reach areas, the Mission Master provides safety and security to the mounted and dismounted forces, increases their operational effectiveness, and keeps them out of harm’s way.

One platform – Many missions

Building on a robust base platform, the Mission Master allows to easily install a variety of modular payloads onto the vehicle to accomplish all kinds of missions. Any specific requirements can be fulfilled with our made-to-order UGV solution. By working closely with every customer, Rheinmetall guarantees that the right solution is always provided for the right purpose.

Rheinmetall unveils its new Mission Master – Armed Reconnaissance

The Mission Master – Armed Reconnaissance is built to execute high-risk scouting missions, deliver real-time common operating pictures, and provide fire support on the frontline if necessary. It is equipped with reliable, resilient information-gathering technology and a Rheinmetall Fieldranger remote-controlled weapon system. As with other modules of the Mission Master family, the Armed Reconnaissance keeps a man in the loop for all kinetic operations and life-affecting decisions.

Rheinmetall Canada has developed various Mission Master modules, including the following:

Mission Master - Cargo

The Mission Master - Cargo is designed to alleviate modern infantrymen’s burden. This robust-design UGV can shoulder over a half-ton payload of supplies, equipment, and materials so troops can remain agile and maintain the operational tempo.

Mission Master – Fire Support

The Mission Master – Fire Support minimizes the risk to friendly forces and substantially boosts the combat power of dismounted troops by providing close fire support. It was demonstrated for the first time at the Ammunition Capabilities Demonstration 2019 in South Africa with the Rheinmetall Fieldranger Multi weapon station and Thales 70 mm rocket launchers in hot shot. The remotely controlled system operated in a fully digitized scenario and fired a salvo of 14 rockets, delivering 60 kg of explosives in 1,6 seconds. Quite a feat in the land domain.

The Mission Master – Fire Support can also be mounted with 50 mm weapon systems, .50 cal. machine guns, or 40 mm grenade launchers.

Mission Master - Rescue

The Mission Master - Rescue is capable of autonomously evacuating casualties over long distances. The module features two basket stretchers with sliding provisions and can carry specialized, high-performance equipment needed for in-field medical intervention. While transporting a wounded soldier using the UGV’s stretcher, for example, accompanying medics can use the vehicle as a workstation to administer emergency care.

Driven by Rheinmetall PATH

The Mission Master family is driven by Rheinmetall PATH, a proven autonomous kit (A-kit) that allows military vehicles to operate unmanned even across complex terrains in hostile weather conditions. The AI-enabled technology allows the Mission Master to recognize and track objects, map and analyze terrain, plan safe routes, and more. PATH is a technology proven to keep soldiers safer while increasing operational tempo. One operator can control multiple PATH-enabled UGVs at the same time, without added cognitive burden. What’s more, Rheinmetall PATH has an open, flexible architecture, meaning it will rapidly integrate first-hand innovations as AI capabilities evolve.
